Where To Take Medical Billing And Coding Classes

What is Medical Coding?

Medical coders, sometimes called Medical Records and Health Information Technicians,  play an important role in keeping data secure, organized, and accessible. They must learn the classification systems that allow doctors’ offices, hospitals, and insurance companies to access medical data.

Why should I pursue Medical Billing and Coding?

Healthcare workers are always in high demand and there has never been a better time to enter the field of Medical Billing and Coding. More than 900,000 practicing physicians are relying on medical billers and coders to receive payment for their services. If you’ve always thought you wanted to enter the healthcare industry but just weren’t sure, this is also great introduction into that industry (a good way to ‘get your feet wet’).

How long will the course take?

This is one of our favorite reasons to follow this career path. During this time, you will be prepared to sit for the Certified Professional Coder, Apprentice Status (CPC-A) exam.

What will I learn?

Students will learn the various systems and codes with which technicians classify and secure medical information. They will also gain foundational medical knowledge such as Anatomy and Physiology and Medical Office Procedures.

"Being born in Australia and becoming a naturalized U.S. citizen in 2009, I understand the process and honor of becoming an American citizen and am proud to help those in their quest to become citizens and better their lives."

Daryl Reese, Esq.

(Class of 2014)

"I decided to enroll in Law School when I was 50 years old having enjoyed a full career in the nonprofit sector. Now I have a robust business and nonprofit law practice serving clients throughout the State of California and I am loving it. I could never have made that kind of career transition if it had not been for Empire Law School. The opportunity to take evening courses and at a cost far less than other law schools, and to do so in my own community made my career shift affordable, enjoyable, and attainable."
